Series overview

 

Starring and executive produced by Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actor Rob Lowe, Wild Bill is a fish-out-of-water crime drama following high-flying US police chief Bill Hixon, who is appointed Chief Constable in Boston, Lincolnshire. Landing in the UK with his teenage daughter Kelsey in tow, Bill is ready to tackle the county’s crime figures, armed with a range of statistics and algorithms with every intention of getting in and out as quickly as possible. However, Bill soon discovers the people of Boston are just as smart-mouthed, cynical and difficult to impress as he is, and the man who’s spent his life keeping the messiness of human intimacy at arm’s length is reluctantly propelled into frontline policing and forced to reconsider his relationship with those closest to him. 

 

Episode 4

 

When the body of young local man Will Mowbray is found between two rival farms, a bitter feud is reignited. With the two families – the Merricks and the Gilchrists – having been enemies for over 30 years, the team must deduce which of them is responsible.

 

Bill and Muriel find themselves on opposite sides and both are determined to prove themselves correct. Muriel believes that Ray Gilchirst is the culprit, whilst Bill is convinced that Audrey Merrick is to blame.

 

Meanwhile, Bill wrestles with introducing Mary to Kelsey, Kelsey makes a new friend at the local comprehensive, and Lydia resents doing Bill’s dirty work as the redundancies commence.
